As I have previously mentioned I'm new to the game. Having a blast with it though, even though I think I'm going to have to start over as I'm bleeding money although I'm decently popular in England. I have a few small questions for starting up the company. First I put on two shows per month. I always base one show in England and put the best performers on that show. I then add another show somewhere else in England. Is that a good way to start it out? Is it also a good idea to Max out on the cities that your doing a show, but when your not doing a show there should I drop it to zero? or should I maintain strength? I first did 12 matches per show, I noticed there was no reason for that though so I changed it to 6 matches at one show and 6 at my later in the month show. So any suggestions would be great also, any other little starting ideas would be great. As for amount of performers I have 21 per weight class mixing from expensive to cheap.

I have a similar question: How do you avoid ending up deep in the red when you create your own promotion right from the start of the game? Being based in Japan, I turn off all my advertising as advised in another thread, get sponsors which bring me 10k at most and hire a bunch of the available guys to put on a show. Problem is, most of the ones with halfway decent records refuse to work for my puny org and the ones I CAN get (the ones with 1-0 records) almost always put on average to low interest fights. When the event finally starts I get about 60 spectators and end up paying fighters 6k-10k and only netting half that in ticket sales. Really, what is the trick to starting up from scratch and surviving financially? And is there any way to stop Alpha-1 and Gamma from trying to steal my fighters?

I'm currently running a startup promotion that was based in Japan, and basically just ran shows in the 2 largest locations (Kinki and Kanto I think) with All Out Marketing push in those areas only until I got to medium size. Then I started to branch out to the other relatively large areas (Hokkaido and Chubu I think). I basically ended up in the red and close to being bankrupt when I finally got to the Big size, and was able to sign a PPV carrier. Once that happens, the money woes typically end.

Um whats with the porn spam inside a thread? never seen that before. Anyways... Just because your fights put on low/average matches does not mean something bad. Look at this way, your population in the area is 0, or very low. Therefore any show above that, even an equivalent of a 1% show, is slowly increasing your population. Some things I would suggest are going after the higher excitement fights with less popularity, this way you can pay them squat and still get a decent match outcome. Also put on the bare minimum matches as you said you switched too. Otherwise you are just wasting money, then once you generate some money you can worry about building fighters. Stay away from huge feeder fights. I have read this a couple different places as well so I'm glad others are on board. Yes, 4 out of 5 times the big name/better fighter will win but that 1 time can kill your plans. What stinks about major feeder fights is when the underdog wins he is not good enough to push on his own so that one win is a complete waste. I still book my better guys over lower guys when I want to get them on a win streak but I make sure if their opponent wins I can push them too. When starting out, look for good fighters not popular ones. This way you can try to build for the future. There are some good guys who are in the game and debut with good skills and just have no pop. These are guys that can beat the jobbers you currently have on your roster and build them up.
